New Wonder Woman Costume Revealed

Get ready for another edition of the Great Wonder Woman Costume Debate to begin.

The last time Wonder Woman got a new costume (pants and a jacket), there was quite a commotion. People are often resistant to change. It turns out in WONDER WOMAN #41, on sale in June after Convergence, she'll be getting a new look. HitFix has revealed the solicit for the issue.

WONDER WOMAN #41

Written by MEREDITH FINCH

Art and cover by DAVID FINCH and

JONATHAN GLAPION

THE JOKER Variant cover by BRIAN BOLLAND

On sale JUNE 17 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US RATED T

Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for details.

A daring new direction begins with the arrival of a brand-new villain! But while he may be new to us, he’s not new to the world he seeks to tame. And speaking of villains, Donna Troy’s quest to destroy Wonder Woman ratchets up another gear (if that’s even possible!), while the games of the Gods bring dark portents to the ultimate Amazon!

Our immediate reaction is it has a lot of red. It really has a patriotic feel to it. Hopefully those wrist spikes are removable. Change is fine. There's no reason Wonder Woman shouldn't have more than one outfit. There's no reason she has to wear the same exact outfit every single time she goes out. We particularly dig Jason Fabok's recent weak in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Hopefully we haven't seen the last of that.

What do you think of the new outfit?

I dig it. Looks a lot like Sif though but I dig her look too.

I also like the JL one at the end of the article.

@saren: It really doesn't. The breastplate and tassels are completely different. Diana isn't sleeveless, has a higher neck and tiara. Plus the extremely different colour scheme. The only real similarities are the boots/both are wearing pants now, which is simply a practical thing that should be true of 90% of costumes.

The fact that the general style is similar is simply true because they are both mythological, warrior women and if anything this Sif has been taking heavy inspiration from Diana considering her comic look historically almost never looks like that photo. She looks far more Greek than Norse in the MCU.

The 90s called Wonder Woman, they want their shoulder pads and overly excessive armour back.

Im not really feeling it at all.

Its too over dressed (which is ironic cause she used to be underdressed) and why does she need "wrist spikes"?

Looks alright, tho I really was just starting to dig Faboks take on her look. The bracer-spikes seem kinda odd. What I do really like about tho is he gold in the armor instead of silver. A little throwback to Post-Crisis/Pre-Flashpoint for her.

I don't like it... at all. What's wrong with the Fabok design? They should stick with that.

Wow, what a difference a few years makes. When she had pants in both the Odyssey and the new 52 people lost their cha cha's and they actually forced a change to the panties. This Batgirling and street wear for characters and the reaction actually makes me somewhat proud of fandom.

The Superman thing though...oofda.

it's like what happens when you go 50% in either direction. the boots + pants look bad, the wrist blades? wtf, the random stars....did her grandma sew those on....just blah.

Isn't this basically just her old new52 costume with an under-armor bodysuit? I guess the flappy skirt parts are new too.

I'm ignoring the wrist spikes. Those are ridiculous.

With the exception of the blades and the loin cloth, I really like it and while I didn't have a problem with her previous costume its nice to see a more modest costume going forward (and one that isn't that terrible night club bouncer costume they tried to give her a while back)

I like it but i would loose the American Flag motive and make her boots smaller.

Okay...now that I take a second to think about it, it still looks good, but it's just not WW style.

I LOVE the fact that she has more armor & is finally for the first time in her life, fully covered up, but wtf is up with those gauntlets? Why does she need wrist spikes? Just leave her normal gauntletes, they already have a story purpose, in which they restrain her godlike powers. And also, they are as iconic as superman's cape.

my thing is either go underwear or not... don't give us this half underwear superhero look + faux realistic functional junk.

It would be nice if it had a bit more of an ancient Greece design, but I like it over all. I do hope those arm spikes are retractable.

..... Ugh..... dear god that's bad, that's really really bad. She doesn't look like an Amazon, a warrior, or a hero. Not quite as bad as when she wore the weird pants jacket combo, but still bad.

It screams "We have no confidence in our character"

This is one new direction for Wonder Woman that I can get behind.

I am totally, totally a fan of Wonder Woman getting some pants. But I think they have some weird problem figuring out what color/design those pants should (this goes for the new TV Supergirl too). The whole loincloth thing makes it look too busy. You could cut a lot of decoration out of this (including the spikes, obviously) and end up with a good costume. For instance make the top of the shirt red too, so it doesn't look like a bustier on top of a shirt. Cut the loincloth, cut the stripes on the boots. Cut the stars and the collar.

Or, just go back to the last pants version when this volume first came out.

It's very different, but it'll grow on me.

Seems rather heavy compared to everything else she's had before too.

WW #601 costume was pretty cool! She was metal! This new costume also looks boss.

Looks f'ing great. Her lack of armor was one of the things I disliked about the character.Hate the oversexualizing of female characters.

But look at this it's an actual functional armor (sure she is strong enough to not actually need it). And it's not bulky like Brienne from GoT, it's still feminine. You cán have both functionality and femininity and I would like to see it on more characters. The exception being Harley Quinn, psycho skanky fits her insanity.

I like it. It's better than the last time she went with long pants. I think that the stars on the ribcage are a bit too much. Now if they could only design Wonder Girl's costume.

Actually I am reminded of a line from Avengers that now fits Diana perfectly in that get-up:

"Of the people in this room, which one is A - wearing a spangly outfit and B - not of use?"
